Anyone who has a child or a teenager in the home, would know fully well the reasons why a single bed with storage is preferred. To them, the storage box is not just a little cabinet found under their beds, it’s their treasure chest. Words could not explain this better but the feeling of having a neat little container underneath you while you sleep, has that profound psychological appeal of making the child know that whatever is in it, is solely his. Be it his toys, his clothes or even his most prized little treasures, he’d have the reassurance that what’s there is his to keep. This sense of personal possession is very important for his psychological development early on. Of course, one would have to remind the child not to put his sugary treats inside!
Teenagers on the other hand are a different case yet the roots of their thinking are still grounded on the same principles. For them, a single bed with storage most probably gets ignored. It gets ignored, but they still use it for simple utility. This is where they would keep their stash of gadgets or their personal trinkets that have special meaning. Unbeknownst to them, much of this behavior is also based on the same fundamental childhood psychology. Teenage life is the age of exploration and though they may be out of the house often, the little storage box under their beds is still the place they’d keep their most prized possessions.
For the parent, a single bed with storage is one among many choices for the young ones. Based on experience, they really are the beds of choice for the simple reason that they keep the room looking organized and sleek as opposed to getting a cheaper bed and just using a real box. Beds with open areas beneath them are a pain to clean up. Dust settles in often and sweeping is going to be a daily chore. With these storage boxes hugging the flooring, very few dusts would be able to get through. This saves on time and effort both for the parent and the child.
However, don’t let the austere title fool you. A single bed with storage is not just a bed with a box beneath it. The beds of old are nothing like the models now. The beds today like Revelation Adjustable Bed – Sand, is crafted with a premium taste that you could almost picture it inside a luxury loft in Manhattan. It’s a great addition for the up and coming home of tomorrow.
We have all know about the importance of sleep. No matter where you are in life, chances are that you are not getting enough of it. As we also all know, the older we get the more important it is to take care of ourselves. One of the easiest ways to achieve both of these necessities it to ensure that you have a comfortable mattress that meets your specific preferences and requirements.
Just like food or the arts, we all have a specific preference for our mattresses. There are a variety of factors that cross our mind while choosing a bed. The materials that a mattress is constructed out of will determine its quality, since we do not buy a mattress for it’s cosmetic value. The firmness factor varies substantially, and this factor is purely based on personal preference. It is very important that you try out a mattress and make sure you are comfortable before purchasing it. You do not want to find out the ‘hard way’ that you don’t like firm mattresses.
Many of us suffer from back pain and other physical ailments that can affect our sleep. For us, buying a mattress might come down to physical requirements that determine our choice. For example, if you have lower back problems, you may prefer a firm mattress that supports you and does not allow you arch your back (as much as compared to a ‘soft’ type), thereby supporting your spine and minimizing discomfort.
Lastly, you must decide how big of a mattress to get! This depends on the size of your room, but more importantly this depends on the sleepers themselves. If you are purchasing a bed for your 10 year old, perhaps a queen size mattress is not required. On the other hand, you may only look at queen size mattresses if you plan on choosing a bed for your master bedroom to be shared with two people. The most important thing to do is know the dimensions of your bedroom. This can take all the guesswork out of deciding what size mattress to buy. Remember that we spend almost one third of our lives sleeping, so make sure you’re comfortable.
